Top 10 Masala Films of All Time – Part 2

Posted in the good with tags , on August 9, 2021 by Saket

This is Part II of my video essay on the Top 10 Bollywood Masala Films of all time. This was supposed to be my first video series but it somehow got delayed for various reasons.

I’ve chosen my top 10 based on the following criteria (in order):

a) Historical significance
b) The film’s legacy and lasting impact
c) The cut-off point or the earliest point (1973)
d) Personal choice, which accounts for at least 1 film out of the top 10

Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did while making it. And thanks, of course, for all the guess work regarding that one film amongst the top 5. I’m afraid only Sanjana got that one right!
